Taking Tips From ‘World Class’ Lacazette & Aubameyang as Starlet Sets More Milestones.
18-year-old Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah has revealed the advantages of playing with the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has for a developing young forward.
Nketiah has broken into the Arsenal first-team this season after continuing to impress for the club’s Under-23s. At the Gunners, Nketiah says he has had the chance to learn from some of the best strikers in the world as he continues to break personal milestones.
„I’ve been watching their movement, how they finish in front of goal,“ Nketiah explained, as quoted by Football.London. „Everyone has a different style, so I’m just trying to pick up a few things from them.“

Lacazette arrived in North London from Lyon last summer for a then club-record fee of £46.5m. A knee injury has kept the Frenchman sidelined over recent weeks, but he has apparently developed a close relationship with Nketiah since joining the club.
Aubameyang is Arsenal’s latest marquee signing. Signed in January from Borussia Dortmund, the 28-year-old is the Gunner’s new club-record player after joining for £56m.
„They’re world class strikers,“ Nketiah added. „So to be able to train with them and learn from them is a great feeling. I just want to keep working hard by learning from the best.“
